Taranis

Israel-based Taranis, a precision scouting and agricultural intelligence company, announced plans today to locate its global headquarters in Westfield, creating up to 60 new, high-wage jobs by the end of 2023. The new headquarters will help grow Taranis’ presence in the Midwest and enhance customers' accessibility to the company's state-of-the-art agriculture technology solutions. 




“Taranis’ new headquarters is a welcome addition to the Hoosier state as we continue to grow our thriving tech presence," said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. "This investment will further strengthen our position as a top agricultural producing state and help attract a large, diverse talent pool for the future. I couldn't be more grateful Taranis has chosen Indiana to call home.”

 


 

Taranis, which empowers growers to make informed and timely replant, crop nutrition and protection decisions that optimize yields through precision scouting, is investing nearly $10.5 million to lease and equip its new 6,000-square-foot facility at 725 E. Main St. in Westfield. The facility will allow the company to significantly expand its team of agronomists and associates while increasing its total acreage serviced. The company’s location in Tel-Aviv, Israel, will continue to operate as its Innovation Center.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) partners with industry organizations like AgriNovus Indiana, the state’s initiative dedicated to promoting and accelerating the growth of the agbiosciences community, in order to target business recruitment in high-skilled, high-growth sectors. AgriNovus works to cultivate business development needs within the agriculture sectors, helping recruit organizations like Taranis to expand or locate in Indiana.

The IEDC offered Taranis Inc. up to $1.25 million in conditional tax credits based on the company’s high-wage job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The city of Westfield supports the project.
